Last game you finished



  • Finished Kentucky Route Zero, pretty sure it will finish the year in my top 3. Very narrative focused, surreal, wonderfully written, emotional and funny. Some really magical moments there.



  • Just finished Yakuza 5. So now that I've officially completed all the mainline games outside of 7, my personal ranking is 0, 4, kiwami2 (Y2), 6, 5, 3, kiwami (Y1).

    I liked:
    Shinada's batting minigames being totally different than everyone else's.

    5 cities! And some smaller areas like the hunting village. I immediately knew my way around Sapporo, having been there IRL before, but I got lost in Nagoya... lol

    Surprisingly, I liked the rhythm game Haruka dance mechanics a lot. I'd buy a Yakuza dancing all night.

    73 hours and 16 min

    Just finished Okami. I thought this was going to be a short 15hish action game, ended up being an epic adventure that took me more than 50h. My expectations for this game were so wrong. Hilariously wrong! Was not expecting this to basically be a Zelda better than most Zeldas. Better late than never I guess.



  • Got around to finishing the main quests of Journey to the Savage Planet. Definitely didn't regret getting this one. The level design started off pretty okay, but as it goes on it just keeps getting more fun and challenging to traverse, making sure to utilize as much of my tools as possible. I was having so much fun exploring that I ended up finding a lot of the collectibles accidentally, and got side tracked from the main missions very often. The combat is quite lacking, and it doesn't help that there's barely any threat outside of a couple of easy mini bosses, but it never really felt like a combat heavy game anyway. I actually kinda like the humorous writing in this game. It never got annoying to me, although at best it's just chuckle worthy. The only part in this game that really annoyed me was the final section, it doesn't feel climactic and it's the least fun part of the game. Overall it's quite the neat little game. 7.5/10



  • Just finished Bayonetta. I played it on normal and did that game kick my ass. I actually found dark souls 3 easier.



  • Call of Cthulhu. Game has super glitchy sound and awful lip-sync. But I've enjoyed it, nice atmosphere, well placed and just the right length (+-8h).



  • @phbz I'm playing it to and while you're 100% right I'm really digging it. Them stealth sections though not good.



  • @paulmci27 The game is at its best when you just talking and doing detective work.



  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps - Amazing game from start to finish. Although, I did run into a few audio bugs playing on PC but besides that, this game is close to perfect. Moon Studios did an awesome job once again and I'm excited to play whatever they make next. Which is apparently going to be a new action RPG.



  • CoD: Advanced Warfare (singleplayer). Is it controversial to say that this game's campaign is one of the better CoD campaigns? You know what, I don't care, this IS a great campaign. Mission variety is great, there's lots of really cool moments, the pacing is pretty good, and most of all it got better as it goes on. The exo suits, especially the one that allows double jumps and dashes, are quite exciting to play with. The set pieces are pretty good overall, although many times it feels too buggy or sloppy, especially during anything involving high speed. The story is lacking, mostly because the game didn't really spend much time fleshing out details and characters (one character that I'm kinda fond of doesn't really get the spotlight she deserves), and it's quite predictable, but it's nothing offensively bad. Not to mention, there's just a lot of cool looking weapons here, they did a great job making somewhat grounded futuristic warfare tech that's fun to play around with. Had a blast with this one. This makes me want to try out Infinite Warfare, but I gotta hold off for now. (8/10)



  • @shoulderguy Finished it today too. Shame the technical issues because the game is close to perfection. Hopefully they'll stop using Unity.



  • I was pretty sure I would never beat a souls game, I had tried them a few times and simply didn't click for me.

    Today after a grueling fight with

    Spoiler
    Gherman

    I can say I've beaten Bloodborne, and man what a game it is, I've already started the New Game+ and beaten the first optional boss, there was a moment I thought I would just give up on the game, but I'm glad I didn't. I doubt this is gonna make me go on a frenzy to play other Souls games, but I'm definitively more open to it than before.



  • @bard91 As someone who absolutely adores that game, I feel like that final boss was a super hype twist. You mind adding a spoiler tag to that?



  • Just finished The Outer Worlds. It's admirable that it managed to be so exciting and fun to play, despite the many rough edges it has. The writing was well done and entertaining the whole way through, which certainly helped. I got a very satisfying ending too. (9/10)



  • Doshin the Giant

    Nearly great. Conceptually and aesthetically its a success. It has a beautiful island atmosphere and helping villagers to grow their townships and sculpting the landscape are rewarding. I love all the animals pattering about, the Yellow Giant's theme is fantastic, and I think that it supplies some interesting frustrations that seem like a natural consequence of playing as a god character as opposed to design oversight. The problem is that it just doesn't quite feel complete. I wish villagers were capable of a little more, maybe of resistance or war. The setup is so strong, I wish it was taken to the next natural step rather than it staying in a comfortable state. The ending is disappointing as well.



  • Just finished Yakuza 0. Pretty good stuff, excited to play Kiwami next. I don't know when though. (7.5/10)



  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (2019)
    I played the DX version last summer and went into it not expecting much honestly. Beat it and was rightfully taken aback by how good it was. It made me appreciate GB/GBC games.

    Anyways, I preloaded the remake but never got the chance to play it till now and I'm so glad it's just as good as the original. I was a bit on the fence with the art style when it was first announced but it grew on me super quick as I was walking around Mabe village.

    I don't have much to say really. I guess I just wish they added a bit more? I managed to 100% it fairly quickly, even with the added heart containers and secret seashells.

    It's a fun classic Zelda game with a gorgeous soundtrack and that's all you need really.

    Now remake OoT, you cowards!

    Zero is fantastic but Yakuza 1 and 2 are even better. A good thing to take into consideration though is that both Kiwami titles are a sensible length, unlike Zero.



  • @sheria Sensible length, you say? That sounds great, I don't mind 0's length too much because it kinda justifies it, but anything shorter would be better for me these days.

    Gotta disagree, Yakuza Kiwami might be my least favourite in the series that I've played. Not that its bad but I got tired of battling Majima and it felt too samey as Y0. Kiwami 2 will be a huge jump after K1.
